When you drive home, you need extra windshield wiper fluid because of all the slush coming off of the cars in front of you. Your feet are permanently wet from the snow, slush, and ice penetrating your footwear. It feels like you have to add an extra 5 layers just to take the garbage to the curb.
There really are some not-so-nice days during a winter in Canada.
And then you arrive home. When you walk through the door you are met with the most delicious smell. The crockpot. I <3 the crockpot. The whole house smells glorious. Your tummy grumbles. You throw off those extra layers, rush to the kitchen, and grab some utensils. Dinner is warm and ready! And after one of those long, dark winter days, that is truly awesome!
